The session started with ‘What is Wireless Technology and how Communication is done without Wires’. The advantages of Wireless Technology were also discussed. Then Internet of Things (IoT) - a technological concept was discussed including how the objects of daily life are equipped with electronic components, software and sensors and are connected to the internet and to each other. The project based on IoT was presented to all students. The model of a bulb was controlled using a mobile phone - using Node MCU and a relay. The objects acted in an intelligent way when the bulb was turned on and off using a mobile phone. Later, a question & answer session was held and the queries were answered by the Mentor. Overall, the session was very informative and interactive. Students were amazed to see the bulb glowing using a mobile phone. There are many devices that we can control wirelessly.
